In his first story for TIME, Jon Meacham address a simple question: “What if there’s no hell?”
He looks at the “growing furor” over a new book by a pastor who says there may be no hell and that anyone can have a place in heaven no matter their sins. Meacham writes that Bell’s book, Love Wins, “has ignited a new holy war in Christian circles and beyond….

Something new is in the air.”
